The weather was touch and go at Quaker City Raceway in Salem, OH today
but the sun finally won out as Denis Stanislaw and AGNS captured NEDRA
record # 6 in the MT-D class. We set up with 14 DEKA's (168 volts) and
set our sites on the 12.49 record set back in 2004. We left the track
with a best run of 12.08 @ 102.91 in the semi final round of
eliminations. We had dialed a 12.07 and beat one of the regulars at the
the track and for a brief moment we thought Denis had made it all the
way to the finals. Unfortunately he was disqualified after the run for
going past the stage lights during his burnout. The 12.08 was backed up
with two runs of 12.15 @ 103 MPH. Next stop 240 volts !!! We may just
skip the 11's and head straight for the 10's. Probably not but it sure
sounds good.

Shawn, much congratulations on your new record! I would just like to add
one comment. In your enthusiasm you wrote: "The 12.08 was backed up with two
runs of 12.15 @ 103 MPH. Next stop 240 volts !!! We may just skip the 11's
and head straight for the 10's. Probably not but it sure sounds good."
Just so the newbees on the list know, in our daily life a second may seem
like a very short time but on a drag strip it is an eternity. The difference
between 11 second ETs and 10 second ETs is the difference between being
twenty years old and being sixty. That analogy may give some of you a clue
:)\

Indeed most super cars are in the 11 second range. Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Mazeratis, anyting that ends with an i is generally in the 11 second range or slower. It takes LOTS of power to get into the 10's!

Hi Rod,

As I said the 12.08 was on our final run. The two runs of 12.15 @ 103
mph immediately preceeded. I'm beginning to see why Mr Berubi loves
going hunting with the CE4. This bike is incredibly consistent. It
doesn't spin on a good track, there is no front end lift, and the rest
is battery temp and voltage. I pushed the battery temp up before the
last run and it hit just about where I thought. Ironic that if we would
have made it to the 11's the record would have been more than 1% faster
than the 12.15 and wouldn't have counted. As it is the 12.08 leaves a
good jumping off point to go to 240 volts.

So I ran some numbers through the Speedworld calculator:


At 168 volts as on Saturday
AGNS has a GVW with rider of about 550 lb.
Best ET was 12.08
Amount of batteries was 14 pcs
Calculated wheel HP = 62 / 14 batteries = 4.4 wheel hp per battery

At 240 volts
AGNS will have a GVW of about 622 lbs.
Amount of batteries will be 20 pcs
Calculated wheel HP = 20 x 4.4 = 88 wheel hp
Back through the calculator and we get......
11.20 ET

Of course this assumes many things including traction, etc... BUT
the gearing at 240 volts is going to give the motors much more headroom
at the end of the strip. In others words they will be pulling all the
way down the track instead of half way. AGNS ran the 1/8 at over 90
mph yesterday and just cruised the rest of the way to 103 in the 1/4.
On OJ we are getting over 5 HP per battery to the track. Although the
custom LMC motors are more efficient than the Perms on AGNS, I still
think we can get 4.8 HP to the ground on AGNS when the gearing is
right.

So one more time through the calculator:
Calcualted wheel HP = 20 x 4.8 = 96 wheel hp
Estimated ET = 10.85 secs @ 125 MPH.


Now that would be pretty fast on a minibike.

Shawn

Hi, Shawn,

Congratulations on your new record. Maybe this will entice Steve Kiser to
take Dragon Rose out of mothballs and get back on the track.

I am also interested in seeing pictures of AGNS. It must be an awesome
ride.

Thanks Shawn I appreciate the answer but I guess I
didn't ask the right questions, I'll try again.
what size, type of construction Mags/Steel/Aluminum
what configuration I think you mentioned duel rear
wheels in one of your posts?
Tires slicks or street
batteries size do you change it when you up the
voltage(how are you able to use the same vehicle for
so many v classes?) If you were closer I would come
to see you race. I went to florida to see OJ but you
didn't have AGNS then. Are you going to the NEDRA
finals on the 17th?

F.T.

Get that bike out of mothballs, put in some new DEKAS, and put it in
the 11's !
The best way I know to get back out racing is to give them a reason.
If I can help in any way let me know.

Shawn

Hi, Shawn,

Congratulations on your new record. Maybe this will entice Steve Kiser
to
take Dragon Rose out of mothballs and get back on the track.

I am also interested in seeing pictures of AGNS. It must be an awesome
ride.

- F.T.

Keith,

We are using aluminum 10" wide rims with 8" wide slicks stretched out.
There are two in a tandem setup making AGNS a 3 wheel inline motorcycle.
Maybe the first ever on a dragstrip, but I doubt it. By playing with
the motor magnets, tire diameter, and series/parallel arrangements of
the motors we can switch between voltages rather easily even without
actual gearing. I checked the 60 ft times for AGNS from Saturday. The
best was 1.6 secs. Almost quicker than OJ. I have a feeling she is
going to better this when given the added torque of 6 more batteries.

AGNS actually made her debut in south Florida. Her best run that
night... 22 secs @ 67 MPH.
On not really sure how to post photos, but if you can do it I will be
glad to email them to you.

Shawn

Thanks Shawn I appreciate the answer but I guess I
didn't ask the right questions, I'll try again.
what size, type of construction Mags/Steel/Aluminum
what configuration I think you mentioned duel rear
wheels in one of your posts?
Tires slicks or street
batteries size do you change it when you up the
voltage(how are you able to use the same vehicle for
so many v classes?) If you were closer I would come
to see you race. I went to florida to see OJ but you
didn't have AGNS then. Are you going to the NEDRA
finals on the 17th?

I am not clear on what you mean by this Shawn, but -three wheels- on a
-motorcycle- are [AFAIK and IIRC] in violation of NHRA and NEDRA
regulations. You may want to double-check the rule books. We really want you
to have the record but it has to be within the existing rules. I could be
wrong here, I don't have an NHRA rulebook handy at the moment. NHRA regs
supersede any NEDRA regs as far as legal vehicle layouts are concerned.

Thanks Roy,

I guess maybe I should have said inline trike. The NEDRA rule just says
any 2 or 3 wheeled vehicle. We may have to keep these news records in
our books alone.

Shawn
